Client Testimonials

"Not only did Carolyn sell my previous home (in six days), she also helped me through the process of buying a new home. Decision-making is not my forte, and it took me 18 months to find the home of my dreams; Carolyn never wavered. On the contrary, she was patient and determined. She is an incredibly hard worker, meticulous, and professional. She guided me through the processes of buying and selling, making potentially arduous situations almost palatable... I highly recommend Carolyn.

Carolyn Skyles is a small package wrapped with a complete and trustworthy professional appearance inside and out. Her professional approach in all aspects of the selling process from presentation and negotiation resulted in a speedy and smooth close. We have bought and sold numerous homes while relocating to different parts of the US. She stands out as a diamond in the rough among the other realtors who we have worked with . Thank you again, Carolyn!
- Lorraine Tidblom
Janie and I want to thank you again for helping us sell our townhouse on Steck Ave. I have never known a multi-faceted transaction to proceed more smoothly and in such a remarkably short period of time. You can be assured that we will call upon you in the future when the assistance of a Realtor is needed.

I am writing this letter to let you know about the wonderful experience I had using Carolyn Skyles as my Realtor in 2008. She was my listing agent and helped me look for another property to purchase before I decided to move to Houston. From start to finish, Carolyn proved to be extremely knowledgeable about the Austin real estate market and how to best present my property to prospective buyers. She gave me a good idea about where the the current market values were while still allowing me to draw my own conclusions and set the marks. She really went above and beyond in guiding me through the staging process. It looked so good, I almost didn't want to sell! Her marketing materials were top-notch. I felt like the property tours, "word-of-mouth" communication, mailers, open houses, etc. really exposed my property to the widest range of potential buyers. Additionally, when a few issues arose with the home warranty repairs prior to closing, she stepped in and made sure that everything was taken care of properly. She was able to sell my condo at the level I had hoped for in a shorter period of time than the others in the complex. When I'm able to move back to Austin, she will absolutely be receiving my repeat business!

I recently sold my condo in Austin, TX with Carolyn Skyles as my seller's agent. I would like to share with you the experience I had and provide feedback on the impressive results and capabilities delivered by Carolyn. I actually met Carolyn 3 years ago before my international assignment move with my company, IBM, to China. At that time I had decided not to sell (due to financial reasons) but was still very impressed with the preparedness and thoroughness of my introductory meeting with Carolyn - compared to the other realtors that I interviewed. So when I did decided to sell 3 years later, Carolyn was the first person I called (and remembered). Since I was still in China, Carolyn supported me in selling my home remotely - quickly responding and clearly communicating with email, helping to qualify painters & carpenters and inspecting their work afterwards, providing advice and recommendations from very far away (with 12 hour time difference), ensuring the buyers who did not have an agent delivered as needed- and meeting all deadlines and milestones on time and with quality. Carolyn went above and beyond what I expected and could have even imagined. 

I was extremely impressed with Carolyn Skyles. 

Thank you, 

An extremely satisfied client.

Carolyn thanks for being our “Realtor Extraordinaire!” I don’t think I would have survived this last purchase without your help. We are so glad we’ve partnered with you on the last two purchases- here’s to more!
